Read full description of the books Gregor: La Profecía Final:Instead of beginning back in New York, a few months after the previous novel, the fifth, and final, book in The Underland Chronicles takes place almost immediately after Marks of Secret. After declaring war against the rats and their hitler-esque leader, The Bane, the Underlanders are preparing for the mighty war that Sandwich predicted. Gregor, Boots and the gang (joined by a surprise member of Gregor's family) rush to decode the Code of Claw according to the final prophecy. FIlled with nonstop action, Gregor and The Code of Claw is a wonderful and thought-provoking ending to the series.
I can honestly say that this book shook me. After spending so much time with Suzanne Collins' amazing characters, I was quite sad to see them go. I was perhaps more dissapointed that for most of them, there was no happily ever after, no perfect ending. Despite all they have done, Gregor and Luxa are still preteens at the end of this book, so their stories cannot have an ending. They have growing up to do, new struggles to face, and as much as I crave a happy ending, I do respect Collins for not slapping it on there, because to do so would cheapen the novels. I believe that his experience with the Underland has made Gregor into a perceptive young man who is able to see beyond the traditional presentation of right and wrong. Being in The Underland allows Gregor to think more critically, and to make his own decisions, instead of just blaming fate or a prophecy. I also believe that reading this book has helped me to challenge some of the things I once believed and to more thoroughly explore both sides of any issue.
I highly recommend this series to young readers and older readers alike because I think it is a well-written, thought provoking series. I hope that Suzanne Collins will at least consider continuing the Underland Chronicles (perhaps through a prequel or spin-off series, I'm not sure a sequel to Code of the Claw would be wise), or, at the very least, work on a new series that captures some of the elements that made this one outstanding.

Since 1991, Suzanne Collins has been busy writing for children’s television. She has worked on the staffs of several Nickelodeon shows, including the Emmy-nominated hit Clarissa Explains it All and The Mystery Files of Shelby Woo. For preschool viewers, she penned multiple stories for the Emmy-nominated Little Bear and Oswald. She also co-wrote the critically acclaimed Rankin/Bass Christmas special, Santa, Baby! Most recently she was the Head Writer for Scholastic Entertainment’s Clifford’s Puppy Days.
While working on a Kids WB show called Generation O! she met children’s author James Proimos, who talked her into giving children’s books a try.
Thinking one day about Alice in Wonderland, she was struck by how pastoral the setting must seem to kids who, like her own, lived in urban surroundings. In New York City, you’re much more likely to fall down a manhole than a rabbit hole and, if you do, you’re not going to find a tea party. What you might find...? Well, that’s the story of Gregor the Overlander, the first book in her five-part series, The Underland Chronicles. Suzanne also has a rhyming picture book illustrated by Mike Lester entitled When Charlie McButton Lost Power.
She currently lives in Connecticut with her family and a pair of feral kittens they adopted from their backyard.
The books she is most successful for in teenage eyes are The Hunger Games, Catching Fire and Mockingjay. These books have won several awards, including the GA Peach Award.
